Abstract

We report the design and experimental realization of a solar-pumped dimer gas-laser amplifier. The amplifying medium is Te2 gas, which is capable of amplifying laser signals over a broad spectral range. A gain of 42% was measured at a wavelength of 632.8 nm. We also present studies of the material characteristics and a brief review of the study of other candidate materials for solar pumping.
